Right now there is a wonderful phenomenon going on in Bermuda – it’s whale season! It just might be travel’s best–kept secret, but right now is the time to witness the northern parade of the playful Humpback and other whale species… in Bermuda! With the clear blue waters of the Sargasso Sea to the east, and the warm currents of the Gulf Stream just to the west, Bermuda is perfectly situated along the migration routes of whales as they travel to their northern feeding grounds each spring.
March and April are the prime months for Bermuda whale watching. While they can be seen from various vantage points on shore, the best way to get the full humpback experience is to head for the open seas. It’s been reported that the island is becoming, once again, a breeding/calving ground for the humpbacks. That means lucky whale watchers may have the rare chance to see just-born humpbacks frolicking near Bermuda.
